Looking for a great book to take you away? “The Tsarina’s Lost Treasure” takes you to Dutch Masters’ studios in 17th Century Leiden in the Netherlands to watch them use their secret formulas to mix paints while they create their masterpieces. Then you are off to Empress Catherine the Great’s court and salon in Saint Petersburg to observe plotting, intrigue and the quest for culture and power. Later you’ll find yourself in today’s cold waters off the coast of Finland with a scuba tank on your back searching for lost riches on the dark bottom. Finally, you make the circuit of diplomacy and bureaucracy, both grand and local, in such far off places as Sweden, Russia, Finland and the Netherlands to determine the fate of the treasures. It’s a fun and enlightening trip that you don’t want to miss.
